As home buyers continue to search for ways to build affordable new houses more are turning to metal home-building kits. Steel buildings are more durable than wood by using Cold-Formed and/or welded IBeam framing systems, and are more resistant to water damage. Steel will not warp or expand like wood odes, and it does not rot, so it will be less likely to attract fungus. Termites and other insects who eat wood will also steer clear of steel homes Data surveys show a 15% increase in building metal homes compared to wood frame construction. Lower maintenance requirements, floor plans able le to be modified to suit your particular needs, competitive square footage, and metal are becoming popular alternatives for building a house, live work structure and EDUs.
